Klein (Little) Curacao, Curacao

4.3
#3 of 12 in Nature in Curacao
Feel the contrast between the sinsiter past and the upbeat present as you visit the small desert island of Klein (Little) Curacao. A mostly barren island with a dark history, its only significant structures are a ruined lighthouse and a handful of shacks, once used as quarters for slaves. However, you can take a swim in the thriving ocean, where in the calm blue waters you’ll spot sea turtles, tropical fish, and, if you’re lucky, dolphins. Relax in the beach huts serving cold beverages and tasty dishes, or just kick back on the sand and soak up the sunshine.

  • We went with the Mermaid company boat trip which is highly recommended. The island and its beach, I liked. As attraction is an abandoned lighthouse and a stranded boat which you can walk. We saw many fish and also if you're lucky as we had it, any turtle is seen. It was the best passes that we did during our stay in Curacao. 100% recommend it.

  • We are with the Mermaid to klein Curacao. No details about the boat trip. Breakfast, lunch (BBQ) and drink was fine and well arranged. We have seen turtles here more than at West point.

  • We've booked a day trip to little Curacao with mermaid boattrips just at end of our holidays. It was totally worth it, as the island offers a nice beach , a nice walk to the light house and ship wreck. We went snorkeling and first thought there isn't much to see apart from sand but then 3 turtles or so turned up and we could make great pictures. And different from other beaches in Curacao, there were really only few people as no one lives on the island.
  • Great white beaches and turquoise water! We’ve even seen a beautiful sea turtle and made a short walk over the island where you can see the old lighthouse and a shipwreck.
  • Beautiful island. Make sure to go there when you are on Curacao
  • I was 2014 on Curaçao and detour could not missed to little Curaçao Bonaire there. I'm although not a fan of cruises, but it was okay. The island is an absolute dream. The water turquoise blue. It loads to the snorkel with turtles a. An absolute must for anyone who is on Curaçao.
